Death, Don't Want to Talk about It!
Lee, Joo Ok
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) (Apr 12-15, 2006)
The appropriate approaches about "death education in early childhood" are addressed in this paper. It is recommended for early childhood teachers to take an advantage of children's daily lives to talk about death and dying of living things such as finding dead insects, corpses of small animals found outside, or plants that turn brown. By seizing teachable moment in children's daily life death education would be more effective and helpful for children to understand "death" and "dying" in their natural environments.
